I hope General Hospital fans are ready for a little bit more of the dark side to come their way. Constance Towers is set to reprise her role as super villain Helena Cassadine on the sudser, according to Soap Opera Digest. The actress returns to Port Charles during February Sweeps and will mix it up with Nikolas, Lucky and Elizabeth. What does Helena have up her sleeve this time?
General Hospital's Constance Towers visited with Soap Opera Source about Helena's return, the Cassadine/Spencer feud and Helena targeting Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) in the coming weeks.
In the coming weeks Helena will target Elizabeth because of her relationship with Nikolas. Why is Helena so protective of her grandson?
Helena has targeted Elizabeth because of her tremendous fixation on Nikolas. No woman will ever be good enough for him. First she was after poor Emily, then Rebecca, and now poor Elizabeth. A few years ago Helena tried to poison Elizabeth because she was with Nikolas. This happened on her yacht. Don't forget that Elizabeth is a Spencer because of her marriage to Lucky so there is the old Spencer-Cassadine feud to consider also.
On today's ABC episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey, Regan and Tina discuss the latest in All My Children, General Hospital and One Life to Live storylines and news, including:
Jamie Luner makes her Pine Valley debut. Chuck Pratt blames his writing woes on Eden Riegel. Pratt Falls, the series, debuts in reaction to Pratt's comments. Bobbie Eakes has a connection to cult hit Sordid Lives.
Helena Cassadine returned to torment the citizens of Port Charles. As a fan of all things Cassadine - except Sam McCall - Luke is ecstatic, but are Jamey, Tina and Regan? Billy Dee Williams returns to the "hospital" in General Hospital, but why? General Hospital is set to debut in HD and the filming is looking better, with the exception of a few people who look like they hit a bad tanning booth. Tristan Rogers believes that General Hospital: Night Shift was the pathway to the future. Why is it that stars like Rogers and the majority of fans understand what is going on, but the executives don't?
Talia becomes the latest victim of One Life to Lives' serial killer, wouldn't it be nice if it were Stacy? Viki provides advice to Clint. Should Viki be Llanview's "talk to" or should she be driving story? Jared and Natalie are protecting Chloe's identity. How long can this last before it comes out? Could Destiny's brother be the rumored love interest for Rachel Gannon?
All this and much more on today's twitterpated ABC episode.

Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) is back! I am in Cassadine heaven. Watching Nancy Lee Grahn, Tyler Christopher , John Ingle, Leslie Charleson and Constance Towers all in one scene, even if Towers only appeared on TV and computer monitors was - dare I say it - awesome. The only thing that could make it better would be if TPTB announced that Stephen Nichols was reprising his role as Stefan and that a casting call was going out for the character of Stavros. Here's to hoping Towers and Helena stick around a lot longer than they are intended. More pictures after the jump. READ MORE
Here's the Scoop! 03.17.09 OH and Happy St. Patty's Day! Drink it up, if you're old enough.
As mentioned yesterday in Catching Up With Constance, Helena returns just in time to ruin the opening of the new General Hospital. April 13th is the day and in true Cassadine form, Helena messes with the hospital computers (where’s a Jackal when you need him?) and cuts the power to GH. Helena’s intended target? Nikolas! Granny pops up on the hospital monitors to level a threat against her grandson. But is Helena already messing with Nik? Remember, RUMORS say Rebecca is in town because of Helena and the secret phone calls (we SHOULD be seeing more) are SAID to have Helena on the other end. This Rebecca crap isn’t working for me (I know, between her and Ethan, I sound like a broken record) and the only way it will work for me is if Rebecca is really Emily. I’m sorry; I don’t see the point of the character especially not at the expense of other actors who have been RUMORED to be getting the ax. My question is why are Nikolas and Rebecca holding hands?
Robin and Jason scenes... Just for you Season. Will they be discussing Robin's woes or Michael's condition? Most likely both. READ MORE
